Bill would reconfigure DeKalb County sales tax – Decaturish

Whenever a new city forms in DeKalb County, it eats into a special sales tax that funds infrastructure improvements.

Now state Rep. Mike Jacobs, R-Brookhaven, has introduced a bill recommended by the DeKalb County Operations Task Force that’s intended to fairly distribute the 1 percent Homestead Option Sales Tax. It would designate the current HOST tax to property tax relief and levy an additional penny sales tax for capital projects, like paving roads.

Both would have to be approved by the voters, assuming the House Bill 215 passes in the legislature this year.
